On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me

A little organic pear tree

organic cotton and bamboo gloves

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Two purple gloves

And a little organic pear tree

corn starch pen

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Three corn pens

Two purple gloves

And a little organic pear tree 

eco friendly board games

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Four gaming boards

Three corn pens

Two purple gloves

And a little organic pear tree

twin compost bins

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Five compost bins

Four gaming boards

Three corn pens

Two purple gloves

And a little organic pear tree

eco friendly Christmas crackers

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Six Christmas crackers

Five compost bins

Four gaming boards

Three corn pens

Two purple gloves

And a little organic…

He Knew

He knew

The one in the middle

Crushed by a hundred of his kind

He knew as did they all

 

Trapped inside the rumbling beast

All sound stopped except his own

The light of day not welcome now

Streaming in through widening maw

 

Goaded prodded screaming in protest

No chance to evade the sticks of pain

Hearing screams in front cut short

Moving inexorably forward towards his own end

 

If only they knew he knew

If they could share his terror, his fear

In his executioner, he met uncaring eyes

As honed blade stole life, he knew

THE TWELVE DAYS OF TURKEY MASSACRE

Sing the following song to the Twelve Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Six months of terrible torture

On the second day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture

On third day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture

On fourth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On fifth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On sixth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On seventh day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On eight day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Never seeing the light of day, hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On Ninth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Being hung upside down by legs, never seeing the light of day, hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On tenth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Being stunned if lucky, being hung upside down by legs, never seeing the light of day, hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, Cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On the eleventh day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Having his throat slit, being stunned if lucky, being hung upside down by legs, never seeing the light of day, hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

On the twelfth day of Christmas the turkey had endured

Being your Christmas lunch, having his throat slit, being stunned if lucky, being hung upside down by legs, never seeing the light of day, hardly being able to walk, being genetically engineered, NO PAINKILLERS, Cutting of his crest, cutting of his toes, cutting of his beak, and six months of terrible torture.

Farmers Fed Up With Corporate Demands

Even the farmers themselves are caught in the spiral of greed fueled by the demand for cheaper meat. This video shows another side to the chicken farming argument.

The driver of this cruelty is the consumer, spurred on by the retailer.

Don’t be a part of the cruelty, say no to Factory Farming

 

Find Your Voice

Having watched so many videos exposing instances of animal cruelty recently, it made me think about the cause of all this suffering, and what could be done about it.

The easy option is to keep our heads stuck firmly in the sand, pat our dogs or stroke our cats whilst supporting the terrible cruelty in modern intensive farming today.

The easy option is to say, well what can I do, I am just one person.

The easy option is to let the giant supermarkets and the meat industry continue to give us what we want at a price that salves our conscience.

If we all think that our lone voices will not make a difference, then nothing will ever change. But if we all make the choice as individuals to do something, we will become the united voice for change that the big organisations will have to listen to.

Just a small change by a lot of people can make a big difference, if everybody gave up eating animal products just one day it would prevent the suffering for millions of animals around the World.

Go on…. Try giving up for just one day a week, and be part of something great.

 

Abstain

Do not pay for an animal show

To SeaWorld and Circuses please don’t go

For the animals there do not have a voice

They perform for you without a choice

-

Whales and dolphins, elephants too

All are suffering to perform for you

Ripped away from their natural home

Or bred in captivity, forced to live alone

-

So please spend your money cruelty free

Not on promoting pain and misery

For when you say no and abstain

Animals can live their lives free again

RATS, COCKROACHES AND POLAR BEARS

RATS, COCKROACHES AND POLAR BEARS

 The sun grew hot in the Arctic

Toxins rose from the ocean floor

Habitat  destroyed

Driven to extinction

Unaccounted for.

~~~~~

We swam in search of icebergs

Hundreds of miles or more

My cubs drowned in exhaustion

Before I reached the shore.

~~~~~

Once on land I searched for food

I couldn’t find it anywhere

Ignored on the Ice – Invisible on Land

The humans did not care.

~~~~~

I’m left to seek help from low places

Among garbage and poisonous air

“Come dine with us, we have plenty to share”

said

The rats and cockroaches

of the dumpsters and landfills

To The Earth’s

Last Polar Bear.
